Jeudi Pop (Anne Cecile Rouxel, Rinus van Alebeek), a combination of musique concrete and electropunkpop, might seem an odd combination of two genres that at first 'sight' appear completely opposed to each other. Those who listen more close will discover that Jeudi Pop brings together again the aspects of experimental music that once were united in the works of Luc Ferrari: ambiental recordings, melodies, voices and atmospheric compositions. Jeudi Pop sees itself as a continuation of Luc Ferrari's work, with other landscapes and different sighs, but the same warmth.

Rinus Van Alebeek is a tape musician and performer born in Holland in 1956. He arrived to music relatively late, after publishing two books in his native country under the pseudonym Philip Markus, the first of which, released in 1991, received the award geertjanlubberhuizenprijs for the best first novel.
"His approach to musical improvisation is seen as a radical one. Very frequently he uses as a source for his work the sounds recorded in his trips to the USA, around Europe and the North African countries. Rinus Van Alebeek is a peculiar observer of reality and an artist who instinctively transforms lo-fi tape recordings into evocative sound poems, being able to create a “détachement” towards the used media, which is a characteristic of the most original artists. He transforms a specific technology (the magnetic tape and the recording device) into a “poiesis”, a transcendence that goes beyond the immediate limits of matter, whereas the majority of artists can only deal with a “praxis”.
